During the Spring of 2016, the Phoenix City Council established an Entertainment District pursuant to A.R.S. Section 4-207(C)(4) in downtown Phoenix which allows, upon authorization of a Use Permit, an exemption for alcohol sales from distance requirements from a church, or a public or private school. Liquor license applicant's seeking an exemption from the distance requirements from a church or a public or private school shall apply for a Use Permit per Section 307 of the Zoning Ordinance to determine the appropriateness of an exemption in this case. Such exemptions are considered on a case-by-case basis if both the applicant and the neighboring church or school are located in a designated Entertainment District. For more information about the Entertainment District, please contact Danielle Jordan at 602-495-0383.
